Fake Bob Ross Builds a Super Mario Level

Fake Bob Ross Builds a Super Mario Level
I spent many a summer day watching Bob Ross paint on PBS growing up. He made it look so easy and there were never mistakes, only happy little birds and happy little trees. I always figured Bob was high as a MF when he made his show. The geeks over at A Dumb Thing dressed a guy up in a giant curly ‘fro wig and set him to painting digitally by building a level in Super Mario Maker, using the Wii U’s controller as his artist’s pallette.
